Best iPad Bag: Urban Explorer Canvas Shoulder Bag

I wanted to get a bag that was smaller than my old standby LL Bean backpack for my iPad. There are many choices available. Many of them look like man bags, purses or pocketbooks.

I didn't want one of those. Other options are for old ammo cases that you can get at Army Navy stores or online.

I was on the path to get one of those, when I found the perfect iPad bag, the Urban Explorer Canvas Shoulder Bag by Rothco.

Best iPad Bag

It's made of heavy weight 22 oz. cotton canvas and measures 12" x 10" x 4". Although the bag can't be zippered shut at the top, that's ok since when you flip over the top of the bag, there's a nice closure.

Great online price too at under $15.

The bag has lots of room in it too. This weekend I fit the iPad, 2 books (Power Friending: Demystifying Social Media to Grow Your Business
and Delivering Happiness: A Path to Profits, Passion, and Purpose) [affiliate links], WSJ Magazine, iPad and iPhone chargers, Playsport camera, + earbuds.


  1. Thanks for the review! I have been looking at this bag online trying to decide if I should buy. How long would you say the strap is? I need an extra long strap because I am tall, but haven't been been able to find the actual strap length anywhere.

  2. I'm 6 feet.

    The strap is really long. Not one of those short inadequate straps.
